    Interesting. I about blew a gasket when I read it.

    I take umbrage at the "statistic", 'thousands'.

    The implication being that if they do have one of those eeevvviiilllll guns, you shouldn't let your kids play there. Grrrr.

    If anyone asks, I'll reply, "Of course I have a firearm. Don't you?" When the blissninny (it's likely that only a blissninny would ask the question) gasps, "No!", I'll immediately advise said blissninny that I cannot allow my child to play at any home where the so-called adults are unwilling to accept responsibility for the well-being and security "of the children." :D

    I am VERY surprised about that "hit piece" NOT being in my Sunday paper, the "Cleveland Plain Dealer".

    The "Plain Dealer" should be renamed something like "Pravda", since it such a leftist liberal rag. The editor in chief is one of those who thinks that names, ages & county of residence of CCW holders should be published.

    "Parade" tends to see life through liberal/left-wing eyes. Therefore one should not be suprised to see this sort of thing. Anyway, if you want to get back at them don't get mad ...

    Just make a list of the advertisers and send each an e-mail telling them you were deeply offended by what you see as an unfair presentation of the issue.

    "Parade" needs those advertisers, and will take notice - so hit 'um where it hurts ... :evil:

    Is that an article? It looks like an ad to me, in fact it looks familiar and since I don't get newspapers I know I didn't see it this week in Parade....

    This begs the question: how many children are killed or mangled by dogs every year?

    I should go Google up that info and see what I get. I'm not saying that there aren't children hurt by guns, but I know more people with facial scars from childhood dog attacks than I know people with scars from childhood firearm accidents.

    Another "non-partisan" front for the gun grabbers, designed to stigmatize and marginalize gun ownership as "unhealthy" and a threat to "normal people".

    According to http://www.firearmsandliberty.com/qa.html:
    That is a biased source of course and it does not address the issue of the number of injuries. However, I doubt the number of both injuries and deaths combined is in the thousands.

    I wonder how many of the "children" in that statistic are gang members?

    I agree, I bet more kids are injured or killed by dogs every year than handguns.

    Personally, I'm not sure if I had kids I'd want the kids of parents who would actually ask whether I have guns as though its a bad thing coming over and contaminating my kids with their pinko views anyway...

    although honestly most kids aren't that stupid. kids who are raised around guns know how silly it is that some people are so afraid of them.

    At this point in time, Pravda seems less socialist than any of the major urban US newspapers. Wall Stree Journal seems to be the only readable daily I can think of, the rest read like Pravda of the 1970s.

    My oldest went on his first "date" a couple of weeks ago (went to the county fair by himself & met the girl & her family there). When he came downstairs to have me give him a ride over there he was wearing his Knob Creek t-shirt.

    My reactions were something along the lines of ... :uhoh: .... :scrutiny: .... :confused: .... oh what the hell, if they're a bunch of anti's it is probably better to know it up front :evil: .

    He had a good time apparently & they're still talking :cool: .

    Just say, "Why yes I do. I've also got a car, some buckets, a bathtub, a bike, and various chemicals under my sink, all of which are more likely to cause an accidental death. Don't worry though, I take my responsibility as a parent seriously."

    They say that 1000's of children die accidently each year from guns?

    Here is fact sheet from the CDC that I like to show people.

    Paid ad. Pax has been doing this sort of thing for at least five years or so.

    Since the 1940s, accidental deaths due to firearms have gone DOWN dramatically, while during the same period, firearms ownership has gone UP dramatically. Interesting that in this context ads such as this appear.

    All the more reason to make sure your child does not have a dangerous curiousity about guns.

    Ideally, if my son ever visits some friend's house in the future, and that kid gets his father's gun, my son will say "first, you need to take your finger off the trigger, quite waving the gun around, and check to make sure it is unloaded, second, my dad has much nicer guns than that, so I am not impressed, and third, my dad has told me to always have a responsible adult around when I handle a firearm, so if you don't put that away I am leaving."

    These blissninnies would be horrified to learn that this weekend, in my presence, my four y.o. son loaded a 1911 magazine all by himself and properly inserted it into my Kimber CDP.

    More statistics on dog bites

    http://www.dogbitelaw.com/PAGES/statistics.html

    The number of victims.
    A survey by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta ("CDC") concluded that dogs bite nearly 2% of the U.S. population -- more than 4.7 million people annually. (Sacks JJ, Kresnow M, Houston B. Dog bites: how big a problem? Injury Prev 1996;2:52-4.)
    Almost 800,000 bites per year -- one out of every 6 -- are serious enough to require medical attention. (Weiss HB, Friedman D, Coben JH. Incidence of dog bite injuries treated in emergency departments. JAMA 1998;279:51-53.)
    Dog bites send nearly 334,000 victims to hospital emergency departments per year (914 per day). (National Center for Health Statistics National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey for 1992-1994. See also the CDC update of much of that research, focusing on the year 2001, in which it was established that the number of people treated in emergency rooms was 368,245. CDC releases epidemiologic survey of dog bites in 2001 - September 15, 2003.)
    Bites to children represent more than 50 percent of the total number cases.
    26% of child-victims -- compared with 12% of the adults -- require medical care. (Ibid., National Center for Health Statistics, above.)
    Getting bitten by a dog is the second most frequent cause of injury to children. (Weiss HB, Friedman DI, Coben JH. "Incidence of dog bite injuries treated in emergency departments," JAMA 1998;279:53.)
    Every year 2,851 letter carriers are bitten. (US Postal Service.)
    An American has a one in 50 chance of being bitten by a dog each year. (CDC.)

    The number of fatalities.
    In the US from 1979 to 1996, 304 people in the US died from dog attacks, including 30 in California.
    The average number of deaths per year was 17.
    Most of the deceased were children. ("Dog-Bite-Related Fatalities -- United States, 1995-1996," MMWR 46(21):463-467, 1997.)
    The chances that the victim of a fatal dog attack will be a burglar are one in 177; the odds that it will be a child are 7 out of 10.

    And from my favorite liberal lie buster www.gunfacts.com

    Fact: In 2001, there were only 72 accidental firearm deaths for children under age 15,
    compared with over 2,100 kids that drowned (29 times as many drowning deaths as
    firearm deaths) [127 Center for Disease Control, 20 Leading Causes of Unintentional Injury Deaths, United States, 2001, All
    Races, Both Sexes, Ages: 1-14]
